There are two different ABS systems for these, need to know if it has sensors at all four wheels or not. Does light flash? Look on the rear end, is there a connector in the middle on the top of the differential?

Looks like this truck has fromt disc and rear drum brakes. No sign of any sensors or wiring at the rear for the ABS system. The ABS light on dash is not flashing but stays on continuously

It's usually turns out to be the sensor at the top of the differential. Clean area well before you remove it, or dirt will fall into the gears!

I would like to know if any of the components in the EVAP system need servicing such as the filter in the evap canister, etc?

I replaced the front brake pads and had the rotors turned about 5 months ago (6500 miles). Now the front brakes act as if they are out of round again.
If I replace the old rotors with new ones should the pads be replace again?

Depends on the type of pad, semi-metalics are usually not worth the effort, ceramic maybe, if you sand em flat. If a smooth flat mating surface isnt achieved, squealing will be a problem.
